Answers With Explanation
1. (c) Let the present ages of Kranth and Krishna be 11x and 13x years respectively,
According to the question, => (11x+7)/(13x+7)=20/23
=> 260x + 140 = 253x + 161 => 260x – 253x = 161 – 140
=> 7x = 21  => X = 21/7 = 3
Difference between their ages
= 13x – 11x = 2x = 2 * 3 = 6 years

2. (c) Ram : Mohan = 4 : 5
Mohan : Anil = 5 : 6
Ram  : Mohan : Anil = 4 : 5 : 6
so Mohan’s age = 5/15 * 90 = 30 years

3. (a) Present age of son = x years then father’s present ages =3x years
According to the question
=> 15x + 20 = 13x + 52 = 2x = 32
So X = 16
So Present age of father = 3 * 16 = 48 years
